Handsome twins and Property Brothers co-stars Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott seem to do everything together, but these two are each one of a kind. The siblings, who grew up in Vancouver and have been prepping houses since they were 18, have managed to cultivate a huge global fanbase, thanks largely to their charming on-screen personas.
Drew is the sharply dressed house hunter who finds the perfect fixer-uppers, while Jonathan is the plaid-clad handyman with a vision. Together, the twins make people’s dream homes a reality.
To celebrate their birthday – they turn 38 on April 28 – Hello! Canada rounds up five things to love about the Scotts.

1. They’re proud Canucks. The twins, who currently call Las Vegas home, grew up in Vancouver and haven’t forgotten their Canadian roots. "There's just something about Canadian people everyone internationally knows. They're courteous, they're kind, they're considerate of everyone around them,” Jonathan told Hello! Canada while attending our Most Beautiful party in 2014. “And I think Canadians are pretty good-looking people too!"
2. They’re ambitious. You name it, and the Scott brothers have probably done it. Aside from starring in multiple television shows (Property Brothers, Buying and Selling and Brother vs. Brother), the twins launched their own production company called Scott Brothers Entertainment in 2013, which they run with their other brother, J.D. They've also got an official Scott Shop and launched a Sailing With the Scott Brothers design cruise, which set sail last November.
3. They’re hilariously competitive. Sibling rivalry is a normal part of family life, but these two take it to the next level. They’ve got an entire show dedicated towards besting each other – Brother vs. Brother.

4. They're all about family. Drew and Jonathan are obviously close – they work together and live together in the same home in Vegas – but did you know they’re also extremely tight-knit with mom and pops? While doing a top-to-bottom gut renovation of their Las Vegas mansion, they built a full guesthouse out back so the folks could come visit in style. Aw, shucks!
5. They give back. The boys are do-gooders who work with a number of charitable organizations, including World Vision, for which they're global ambassadors. In 2013, the HGTV stars travelled to India to witness firsthand the effects of child labour.
